I'm enjoying it. Patch will hopefully sort out the few bugs

Must admit, I have never had as much of a relaxed weekend league as this one. No rage, just move onto the next one until complete. Finished on 13 wins with 2, 4 game losing streaks in there, but few complaints over those losses.

One major thing that annoys me is the amount of second chances the opposition forwards get. When tackling head on, a lot of times, the ball kindly ricochets back to the striker. Frustrating

In all though, with a few tweaks, one of the best fifas in a good while

Gents.

Ea access trial done. I'm keeping final judgement until we have full server loads, but.... it seems EA might have actually listened to some feedback for once. Totally different feel to the game than the beta and has been fun. Some really wierd bounces of the ball at times and near post corners are still there to abuse, but a more rewarding experience when you win. Not many landslide wins. Tight games as the AI defending is a little too OP.

I'm worried it's suckering me in, then it'll al change with a patch or server overload.

I'm confused  ???

Yup. Just fut online.  Everything bad in 18 is in with a few more bad thrown in for a laugh. Add in the usual servers at max every day and you'll not find a worse gaming experience anywhere.

Pace is king. Mad, unexplainable 'momentum' swings during games, kick off goals and wonder keepers all bring the fun to the game  ;D

Just put this in the FUT 19 Beta forum  ;D

Ok, like most people here I have played the FIFA franchise all the way back to the beginning, through multiple console variants and finally on XBOX ONE X and FUT since 2012.  I;m 40+ so this is not some kid sparking one off.
 
All previous iterations of this game have had their merits, but none grabbed me like FUT.  Almost to an addiction point.
 
FUT 18 was the turning point.  The amount of unexplainable things that went on in most games drove me to the point of controller smashing, rage, frustration and despair.  Not a good thing for a video game.  What disappointed me most about 18 was that when playing the beta and pre patch 1, I thought the game had made a massive jump forward in terms of realism.  Defending had been upgraded and separated those men from boys.... problem was, the boys complained, and complained, and complained and we got patch 1.  Game changer.  Bringing back pretty much everything back from 17 with a shiny new look.  Disappointing.
 
Towards the end of 18, I have a 94 rated team (probably the best I've ever had in any FUT), but still do not enjoy playing it.  Every game mode plays differently.  Every match with a different feel.  Hats off to the pros for doing what they do, knocking up 40 wins every weekend.  Guess their connections must be ace
 
Anyways, going into 19 was the least I have looked forward to ever playing FUT.  I was surprised to get the invite for the beta, and my interest perked up.  Downloaded, installed, and away we go.  I'm 8 days into the beta, and must say, with total devastation, EA has ruined what good aspects to the gameplay there was and managed to make all the things which were bad, worse.
 
I love football, but even I, who has not played PES since PS2 days, even resorted to downloading the 19 demo.  Typically, it was crap, but better than FUT19.  That takes a lot for me to say....
 
I hope that EA sees this and can take some action.  The game is just no fun at all.
 
Major issues -
Speed is far too slow - Imagine this when we have servers which are being massively loaded
First touch - 9 times out of 10 the ball bounces a good 10-15 feet away from the player.  Totally unrealistic
Goal Kicks - Very little or no control using the stick.  Wasn't broken in 18, didn't need touching
Timed Shooting - For me, although billed as a new feature, I think its something that has always been there, just not visible, and now you can see why you might hit the post from 3 yards with an open net.  Pointless feature
Passing - What have you done EA ??? Feels totally random who the ball goes to and generally not in the direction you are pointing the stick.  Number of times a man in acres of space out wide.  A tidy strong pass will see him in, but no, it picks out the striker whos marked by 3 defenders and because it has been hit strong, the first touch kicks in and sends the opposition off on a counter attack. 
 
Other issues -
Pack animation - No idea who though that sticking a massive Ultimate Team behind the card was a good idea.  Looks very budget.  No feel of excitement
Card design - 18 was lazy from 17.  19 are just bland.  Golds look like bronzes
Dealing with cards - Wasn't broke, didn't need fixing
Sorting cards - no sort from low to high (in the beta anyways).  If not back in, queue the endless page scrolls to get to your untradeables
Players not playing to their stats - I have Salah and Mane.  Salah, one of the quickest players IRL and quicker than Mane in game, sets off like a 3 legged tortoise

There are other things which others, I'm sure have mentioned.  Maybes next year, get more opinionated guys, who play this game day in day out for some advice because whomever has said this is good shouldn't be playing video games let alone giving advice on it


The state of this game EA..... you should be ashamed

PS.  Cant wait to see what the pro's make of this

Just played 4 games in the weekend league on the beta..... none lasted more than 20mins.

Total bullsh1t game.  I will be genuinely amazed if any of you guys like it. Passing is just horrible. I can't think of a worse iteration of FIFA. I'm gutted

The pros are going to have great fun playing this waste of space game.  EA will have to hire David copperfield to rehash this before release. 18 is light years better than this

Raging  >:( >:( >:( >:(

Just played the PES19 demo whilst waiting for the beta to update....

As bad as FIFA is right now, pes is about 4-5 years behind. Reminds me of sensible soccer, but viewed from the side, except sensible soccer is better

Another year in the bargain bin for PES. I'm amazed they can keep churning out this crap when nobody buys it.

Thanks Simmo! Great info!

Are placed shots still OP?

Verstuurd vanaf mijn SM-G930F met Tapatalk

Finesse hasn't changed at all, other than you now have to time it right, power wise.

Low driven shots are now both shoulder buttons down while shooting.

Shielding is necessary but a hard one to get right for any game. It's so OP and if done right, undefendable.

As I said all the things we hate are all still there

Ok lads....

I've had the pleasure (hahaha) of getting an invite for the fut 19 beta which I have been playing since Friday.  Much like last year they are giving free coins and FIFA points on a day to day basis, which is so very kind of them

First impressions... new lick of paint and relatively the same game engine and gameplay.  The gameplay is all likely to change in the full release like last year as they did last year with the revert back to fut 17 patch 1.

Likes
It's football  ;D

New formations - 424, 4132, 441(2) plus a couple others I can't remember

Time - it's shows past 90 mins  :o

Dislikes
Pack animation - very minimalistic and a downgrade from 18
Dealing with new cards. It's like a 3 tier screen. New items in the middle, transfer list on top and quick sell bottom. Use the right stick to send items up or down. RT to keep what's left. Only good thing is getting a 2nd confirm that you want to quick sell just so you don't screw up. IMO something which didn't need changing.

Card design - nothing looks good

Searching in squad - no option to search from low to high. Might come back in full game

Division rivals - replacing DKT for WL qualification. Initially Complete 4 games to get your skill rating which determines your starting division and point multiplier for WL points. Once there you play games to get skill points to determine your rank (1-4) which determines your weekly rewards (packs/coins or WL points). In the beta you need 100 WL points or finish rank 1 or 2 to get qualification.. I think, so no tables but has the same premise. No idea if there is a limited number of games you can play to achieve rank or points. If it is limited then you are stuck with no online game mode to play for the rest of the time until the new cycle begins  :o

Gameplay -
slower again than 18, but any positive improvements I'll hold judgement on until I've played the full release as last years beta was far better than the full game. 
Goal kicks. Now done by more accurate stick movement but very difficult to judge the distance to kick unless passing to the CB.
Timed shooting. Put in, I assume, to show why we always hit the bar/post from 3 yards out in a manic situation. I think this isn't a new innovation, but now shows a visual 'aid' as to why our shooting is crap.
All the bad in 18. Yup, it's still there. That handicap/scripted feel to games where no matter what you do, you ain't winning. Wonder keepers. slo-mo feels to certain games. They score everything/ we score nothing

In summary for me, it's just not worth it, however I love football so I'll get it. I am likely to not spend anywhere near as much time with it as any previous one though. What do we do though, there is no alternative. I think I have another 8 days before it ends so I'll report back if I find anything else

Hi lads,

FIFA sucks.... its official.  Rarely stick it on.  WC mode sparked a week or so's interest, then tried the odd weekend league game and it almost made me vomit.

19 will, as per usual be purchased (base game only), but FUT needs to go some to make me spend a penny from now on.  Would love to try a RTG thing but I just don't have the patience, time or will to do it, so early pack luck will have to be astounding for me to hold a long term interest.  They have royally F**ked up with 18 and the user base, whilst still strong, has made it clear it has to be better.  If the pro's cant stomach it, they have to listen... right???

All these promos at the death of the game are stupid and I pity those that spend anything on them.  I mean what is the purpose?? What can you use them for??? Nothing.  No argument on the amount of content this year but seriously question the timing.  They should have a final FUT champs qualifying event late on to keep interest.  Also the game modes are really stale.  How buddha could stomach squad battles for as long as he did deserves an award.  No idea what they can do with this to liven it up in 19.  Champs was.... shocking.  The inconsistencies in the gameplay are enough to make you quit gaming, nevermind just FIFA.  Seasons.... needs a serious revamp.


For me Fortnite, as a free game, has in a short time eclipsed any enjoyment ever that ive had with FUT (including packing Pele in 17).  So much fun and great communication and freshness on a week to week basis.


Hope you are all well

Simmo

Well the pull of TOTGS Mbappe changed my Weekend League.

Nothing going for me but kind of enjoying the matches.  was 3-8 early doors, then Mbappe.  Sold him for 500k and briught in TOTGS Firmino.  That LFC front 3 are frighteningly awesome (ST Salah & POTM Mane)

Went on enjoying the games and finished up at  comfortable 21 wins.  Best WL gameplay since the first week or 2.  Yeah same BS but some really good gameplay

Wonder if POTM Salah will be STR or RW ??

Till next time fellas

Marquee Matchups and Gold upgrade packs have yielded nothing for me in ages.

League ones, I have no interest n the end result and would likely get nowt in the packs.  In general quite disappointed n the SBCs offered so far, Icons aside - which I'll never do

Hi fellas.

Rough couple of weeks in FUT world.  2 weekends ago, went back into it after a week off not qualifying with renewed hope, but was soon dashed and finished on 11 wins.  Couldn't be bothered to play the last 7 or 8 games.
Same story this past weekend but started off not being able to buy a win.  Lost the first 8 off the bounce.  Really wasn't that bothered though.  Still came back to win 10 on the spin and finished on 10 wins... again not bothered to complete all games.

Sold off Neymar and went back to the trio of Vidal, Alaba & Boateng with Neuer in goal.  Neuer was good but no better than Ederson.  Sold him and put Martial, Bailly & Valencia as my right 3 in the 4312 and went with Firmino CAM, POTM Mane RS and brought in TIF Salah (Striker Version) at LS.  Relegated the ever reliable Suarez to the bench though. 

Deadly is the word i'd use for the team now.  Requalified at the 2nd attempt and just won the 2nd DKT at the first attempt. So WL is upon us.  I fully expect my team to be useless and can these days pretty much tell after the first 2-3 mins which team is going to win.  More time to play this weekend too so might extend the misery by playing a full set of games, but Fortnite has gripped me a bit so will see.  PUBG is on the horizon too.  Both come as a much needed welcome from the FUT mire

Good luck to all who play this weekend and well done to those who don't play it

Desperate this weekend so far.  Should take a break but am well in the f**k it attitude

Getting beaten by some shocking players, with the usual up 2-1, then in the last 5 mins concede the equaliser then to in extended 90th min time get beat with a f**king rebound goal.

12 wins with 9 f**king games left.  No chance unless the game lets me win.  Don't know how much longer I can put up with this

My 2 teams work... during the week.  Come Friday they go on holiday.  This EA adaptive difficulty has ruined what I thought was a great addition to the FIFA series.

Guess my chances of regional qualifiers is out the window  ;D

I pray that come Wednesday and the XB1X I can find a new vice as FUT has won me out
